      Yay! I finally won a hand with QQ for the first time in I don't know how many hands! Unfortunately it's a small pot...and I'm not sure if a c-bet was a good idea on this scary board...on the other hand, a check behind gives a free card to someone with spade in their hand.

      Also, I know there are a lot of short stacks at this table, but they are all bad SSS players.
